Starting Online therapy

What is online therapy?

With Thriveworks, Online therapy is an effective alternative to in-person therapy services in which a client can speak to a Thriveworks therapist remotely via online video conferencing. Online sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment, but they can also provide added benefits like reduced travel time, saving money on transportation or childcare, and increased access to care.

How does online therapy work?

Online therapy works much like traditional in-person therapy but takes place through secure video conferencing. Clients can attend Online therapy from any safe place they choose that has access to the internet, whether that be their home or another easily accessible place. Like in-person treatment, a therapist will work with their client to address their concerns, create goals, and establish an effective treatment plan.

What is the best option for online therapy?

There is no best option for online therapy—instead, it’s best to focus on finding a provider that meets your specific needs and with whom you can form a professional connection with.

Is online therapy just as effective?

Yes, online therapy is just as effetive for many clients as in-person sessions.

How long does online therapy last?

Online therapy can last for a few months to years depending on the goals and symptoms of the client. The treatment process will be unique to each client and lend itself to their specific concerns, which means that the time it takes to treat them will always be different. Timing is also up to the client themselves; they are free to stop therapy whenever they please, especially if they feel they have reached their goals and addressed their concerns.

How much does online therapy cost?

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Mt Pleasant, SC accept most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Pleasant, SC offer online counseling for those who need or prefer to attend their therapy sessions from home. Many people find that online counseling enables them to fit this service into their schedule with ease. Additionally, it proves just as effective as the traditional in-person counseling approach.

Your counselor will come up with a personalized treatment plan designed to address your unique needs and goals.

What Is Online Counseling?

Online counseling is just as it sounds, there is no catch. If you decide to pursue online counseling, you’ll work with your therapist over the phone or via video chat. It’s your choice! Here’s a little bit about how each option works:

  1. Telephone counseling: With telephone counseling, you’ll have regular phone meetings with your counselor! And your counselor will give you a call at time of your scheduled session.
  2. Video counseling: With video counseling, you’ll have regular video chats with your counselor. Instead of answering their call at the time of your appointment, you’ll click a simple link that your counselor will send to you in advance. This link will take you to your secure chat room.

Online therapy is a valuable counseling option. The primary benefit though—one that often leads people to choose online counseling over in-person counseling—is the convenience factor. A problem for many people who are looking for mental health services is their already busy or demanding schedule!

Online counseling works to remove this problem from the equation. You don’t have to worry about working a commute into your schedule. Instead, all you need is to block out a window of your time to work with your counselor. And then you can hop onto your phone counseling or video session from wherever you prefer or happen to be. Gone are the days when you spend more time getting to and from your appointment than you do in your appointment!

What Are the Other Perks of Online Counseling?

As we’ve mentioned, online counseling is often a great option for many people in search of mental health help. In addition to convenience, online counseling provides other benefits that prove valuable including:

  • Comfort: Because you can attend your sessions from home, you’ll likely feel more comfortable than you ever have before in an appointment! And we mean physically, mentally, and emotionally. Yes, you can stay in your PJs. But also, you might feel more comfortable opening up to your counselor from a distance.
  • Safety: Online counseling also offers safety and security. Certain circumstances can cause us to be sequestered at home, such as a widespread virus. In these circumstances, you can still attend your therapy sessions safely, using virtual means in online counseling.
  • Affordability: Online counseling is also an affordable counseling option. Many insurance companies now pay for video counseling and many also cover telephone counseling, too! In addition, Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant has affordable self-pay rates.
  • Efficacy: We can’t stress enough that online counseling is an effective option too. You aren’t sacrificing success that you would make in in-person counseling. In the same breath, if you find that online counseling just isn’t right for you, that’s okay too! We’re happy to go on this journey with you to find what type of counseling best suits you.

If you want to explore these benefits for yourself, reach out to Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant. We’re here and ready to help.

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.
